I believe that this issue is somehow related to my Google account. I believe this because:
- It happens on all of my devices (unrooted Verizon Galaxy S4, latest 4.4.2 update; 2012 Nexus 7 rooted running latest CM nightly; Android VM in VirtualBox running 4.3)
- If I log in to any of my devices with another Google account, the issue does not occur.
I have tried other ROMs, wiping, clearing cache and data, changing my Google account password - honestly, I do not know what is causing this. And to witness it on a VM in VirtualBox with nothing but the OS and GApps was the final straw, causing this post.
I am a technical guy, I've been in the IT field professionally for over 15 years, and have been tinkering since I got an Amiga 500 in 1988. I've got some background, and it takes a lot for me to reach out for help because I'm a "fix it myself" type... but I am honestly at my wit's end here.
The only other solution I can see would be to create a new Google account, but that's not really an option, considering I would lose my paid apps, and anything else associated to that account.
Any other ideas or advice is appreciated.
